Demi Lovato will reportedly go to rehab after hospitalisation for drug overdose

On Tuesday, Demi Lovato was taken to a Los Angeles hospital after suffering from an apparent overdose. Lovato's friends reportedly used the medication Naloxone, sometimes referred to as Narcan, which can reverse the effects of opioid overdoses to treat the 25-year-old after she was found unresponsive at her home Tuesday morning. Describing him as appearing "very down", a source told E!

Dr. Drew Pinksy, who specializes in drug addiction, recently came out with some advice regarding Demi Lovato.

In the past 48 hours, thousands of supporters have shared ways that Lovato's personal story, candid conversations and music have inspired them and helped them through hard times in their lives.

"This is definitely a medical emergency for her and we will get there as fast as possible". As of right now, she's still scheduled to tour South America and Mexico this fall.

The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer had been sober for six years at the start of this year, but revealed last month through a song entitled "Sober" that she had broken that sobriety.

In 2010, she entered rehab, where she was treated for bipolar disorder, bulimia, self-harm and addiction.

Another source told ET that Lovato's downturn began in the spring. "She just caved and stopped caring, wanted to be herself, let go of all of those expectations and be free of everything and stopped taking care of herself".

She answers: "I was, I am downstairs, other people are upstairs with her".

"Mama, I'm sorry I'm not sober anymore / And Daddy, please forgive me / For the drinks spilled on the floor / To the ones that never left me / We've been down this road before / I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore". Her decision was allegedly sparked by an incident in 2010 when she punched a backup dancer in the face while on tour with the Jonas Brothers.
